  1. Yes, @Disco Stu, that would have been a great choice!! My favorite movement. Perhaps something from Rosewood and Sleepers, too, would have been nice to hear.
  2. Funny, @Thor, I had just the opposite feeling about Helbock's album, in that I was surprised how well certain pieces came off in these jazzy, improvisational treatments. "Hymn to the Fallen", in particular. I found it to be one of the strongest cues on the album. Gone is the reverential tone of the original, but in its place, an interesting bittersweet romanticism that just works IMO. Other highlights for me include: "Theme from Schindler's List" - for much the same reason as "Hymn to the Fallen"; a welcomed break from the countless, cookie-cutter performances of this theme in concerts each year "Hedwig's Theme 4" - the most playful of the four variations on the album which wouldn't feel out of place in a Vince Guaraldi score for a Charlie Brown animated short. "A Prayer for Peace" - relatively straightforward adaptation, with slower tempo Having said all of the above, I totally get why this album would turn off Williams fans. I expected it to do just that for me.
  3. I was somewhat skeptical, but WOW, I'm really enjoying this album!! Certainly a departure from the norm, dare I say a refreshing one.
  4. I’m shocked, shocked that @Thor is actually intrigued by a complete collection of anything. In in all seriousness @Thor, great pic with Broughton!!
  5. Presto Classical has samples up for the regular CD release: https://www.prestomusic.com/classical/products/8642499--john-williams-and-anne-sophie-mutter-across-the-stars
  6. From your lips (or rather, fingertips), @Dr. Know...
  7. I actually bought it when it first come out, but just now picked it up from SAE. I place orders from them and then have them held for me to pick up every once in a while. And they hadn’t received their shipment of the HP box sets from LLL the last time I was there (mid-December 2018).
  8. Sony posted an FYC site for Once Upon a Time in... Hollywood, so I figured it was as good a time as any to create the thread. No music, yet, but it'll come in time.

  10. The short version that appeared on the 1988 Summer Olympics CD was the first commercial release of the piece in any form. However, the short version is just an edit of the full version which was originally recorded and included in the leaked recording sessions. The full version was featured in the closing credits for the NBC broadcast, though (the portion that was cut for the short version starts around 2:21 of this video): https://youtu.be/o8KzNM0F0o8?t=141 The longer version that appeared on the 1996 Summon the Heroes CD was the first commercial release of the piece in its full form, albeit a re-recording. Clear as mud, right?
  11. Nah, the CD isn't all that rare. It was all over the place around the 1988 Olympics and in the bargain bins after that. And there are a number of listings currently on eBay for less than $10: https://www.ebay.com/sch/176984/i.html?_from=R40&_nkw=1988+summer+olympics+album&LH_TitleDesc=0&LH_TitleDesc=0
  12. “Olympic Spirit” was first released on CD in 1988, 8 years before the “world premiere” of the extended version was featured on the Summon the Heroes CD in 1996.
